When I first started tatting edgings, I often did not know what it would end up as, so I would leave it unfinished.
I found this one which I tatted years back. I no longer have any of the pink thread so I unpicked some rings and chains and joined it to the beginning. But not before I found some mistakes. There are still mistakes if you bother to look closely. I could edge or border a small oval pillow with it. The thread is Venus Size 40 in a dusty pink and a dark plum.
Very light colours but the carvings are quite neatly done. The lady showed me several pieces of jade and there were some with bird carvings too. Pretty, but unfortunately I did not want to spend too much. The second photo shows the other side of the jade. The jump rings and ear hooks are 14K gold-filled.
Some prefer silver to gold. Another mismatched jade stone colours, one in light green and the other in pale white. Connected with 925 silver jump rings to the 925 silver threaders. Simple and easy to wear.
I am halfway through tatting this last round. It was difficult to get into the momentum of tatting. I easily got bored and distracted each time I finished one repeat. It was not after several starts and stops did I get the hang of it. It should be completed in a week's time, . . . . hopefully. Will post it then.
